UNT's Annual Open Access Symposia

Thursday, May 19, 2016 to Friday, May 20, 2016


Open access -- making your research free to read online and allowing your works to be reused in certain ways without people needing to ask permission -- is not just good for readers but good for your career as well.

Dr. Masood Raja, Associate Professor of English, will speak about responding to his colleagues' skepticism about open access and how to tell that your open access scholarship is reaching a greater audience than non-OA publications.

How are university presses responding to the move toward open access publishing? What does this mean for authors who want to publish with a university press?

Ron Chrisman, Director of the UNT Press, and Kevin Hawkins, Director of Library Publishing at UNT, will discuss changes at university presses and alternative publishing venues being created by scholar collectives and by libraries.

Do you have a dataset that you would like to add to the UNT Data Repository? Have you heard of the UNT Data Repository but would like to learn more? Do you have questions about formats, rights, or privacy issues related to your datasets that might limit you from sharing it broadly?

Have you ever wondered what it takes to turn your research into an award-winning academic poster?

This Data Visualization and Poster Design Workshop is a follow-up to a Lecture held earlier in the week.
